Dear ELAG Members,

We are pleased to announce that the call for abstracts for the SNOMED CT Expo 2023 is now open. We invite all interested parties to submit abstracts and share their experiences and results about the implementation and ongoing work with SNOMED CT.

By disseminating your results and experiences, we can collectively learn and advance the use of SNOMED CT with the objective of improving the quality of care and services for patients and users.

We encourage all those who have implemented SNOMED CT or are currently working on it to consider submitting an abstract. Please find further details on the event here: SNOMED CT Expo 2023

Kind Regards, 
Ian Spiers

Dear ELAG members

Happy New Year

We are pleased to announce we have created and launched a new learning pathway

The pathway was developed with review from the Translation User Group

This short education pathway introduces SNOMED CT to Translators and covers the common requirements to understanding SNOMED CT. It incorporates e-learning content from pre-existing courses

By completing this pathway a learner will have the basic SNOMED CT knowledge that a translator may require in performing translation. This will help anyone who is starting on their SNOMED translation journey

Free registration is available in our course catalogue https://courses.ihtsdotools.org/product?catalog=TRA

Best wishes
